MONDAY,. DECEMBER 15, 194T m/TTHEVILLB (AKK.)' COURIER NEWS Last U.S. Troops In Italy Removed 1,600 Depart But Truman Warns Reds Not to Try Coupe By J. Edward Murray fc. United PH-SS Staff Correspondent ^ ROME, Dec. 15. (UP)—The last 1,600 United States troops in Italy wore on Iheir way home today but the Italian Communist parly had a clear vrnining irom President Truman not to use their departure as the signal for an attempt to lake over the country. As the Americans sailed from Leghorn on the transport Admiral Sims yesterday, Premier AJcide de Gasperl finished shaking up Iii.s non-Communist cabinet. He added five moderate tcft Republicans and rightwing Socialists U> its membership, Giuseppe Saraj;at. a .strong aiiti Comimmist and Socialist, and Ran dolfo Pace larch, chief pf the He- publican Party, were made vice premiers. The addition of the left Republicans and moderate socialists wrecked the Communists hopes of forming an anti-government leftist front for the March general elections. The last American troops were withdrawn from Italy under the peace* treaty, which specified that occupation troops be out 90 days after the treaty went into effect. The- deadline was midnight last night. But that Urn the Americans were well ouUside Italian waters. They -expected to be home for Christmas. Their date of departure was four years, three months and five days after their entrance at Salerno, the fiist American landing ou the European continent. Italy was called the "soft underbelly" then but the Ailennan armies were conquered in- i^ule Germany before allied troops were'able to penetrate to the Northern border. 6i!e Threat to Reds Most I till inn newspapers seemed to think that Mr. Truman's statement Saturday night meant the Americans would be back if the Communist Party of Italy, together with the Yugoslav army, tried to take over the country. The President said the United States continued its interest "in a free and independent Italy," and that if the nation's independence were theratened directly or indirectly, the U.S. "will be obliged to consider what measures would be appropriate for the maintenance of peace and security." Unlta, the Communist newspaper, called Mr. Truman's statement a "threat of military and . political intervention in Italian internal affairs." It asked him to remember that "Italians can take care of their own independence in Italy." "Democratic Italians salute the American troops. . . ." Unita said. It said = the salute was "only slightly-less' Varm because"'with the end «of th« war their presence in Italy, 'Jriue to the political directives of the American State Department, was objectively determined the rebirth of the same social and political forces which conducted war against the United Nations." The Romanian, Bulgarian and Hungarian treaties went into effect at the same time as the Italian treaty. Therefore, Russian troops were supposed to be out o£ those nations lasl midnight, with the exception of a few who may remain to keep open supply lines to Austria.
